What Is It?
Learn a few tricks about how to find Amazon products to promote on niche websites.
The information contained in the training is legit, but there's not much substance to it. Must of what you learn here can be learned elsewhere for free, or as part of a larger training program. $17 is an appropriate price for Azon Niche Master, but I can't see any concrete benefits to paying for this product.

It's all pretty simple stuff, and they videos are very short. What I can't figure out is why the product creator decided to make *this his info product. Anyone that wants to sell Amazon stuff but doesn't know how is also not going to know how to set up a WordPress site, how to make affiliate links, or how to develop a content marketing strategy.
What I Liked
Ryan Stevenson has a lot of good advice in the videos about marketing in general. He suggests that you be a bit different than everyone else, and not just promote the most popular stuff.
He talks about carving out a specific niche, rather than picking a product set that's too broad.
He emphasizes that you should stay away from automated systems that scrape content from Amazon because not only will you not rank with that junk, but it won't convert into sales, which should be your end goal. It's easy to get caught up in looking for shortcuts, but people are not stupid and can tell when you are just trying to push a sale on them.
Among other good advice, he also recommends that you stay away from domain names and subdomain names with brand names or product names. A lot of people do this with some degree of success, but you are risking a lot when you do this. I know one guy that got his domain name revoked and almost got sued just because his domain name had “zon” in it and was promoting Amazon products.
They're real sensitive about that stuff because everyone wants a piece of the pie.
In a nutshell, Ryan's legit.
What I Didn't Like
The audio on the video was very poor. To be honest, I thought it was one of those computer generated audio samples at first, like the kind you hear in dubstep samples. If you are over 40 you probably have no idea what I'm talking about, so you can listen to the first 15 seconds of the video below to get an idea of what I mean.
*Note 1: I almost wrote “over 30”, then realized that I'm 29. LOL
*Note 2: Be careful if you listen to the rest of the song, your life may change forever or your head may explode. Dubstep does that to people.
What's a Niche?
More importantly however, I felt that a lot of the most important stuff of how to build a niche website was left out.
Don't know what a niche is? Sorry bro, it's not really explained here. He tells shows you a few examples of how to narrow them down but what if you need more assistance than that?
Want to check if your niche is actually as narrow/broad as it should be? Sorry man, there doesn't seem to be any kind of support there either.
As mentioned above, everything before and after actually choosing what to promote is pretty much excluded from the training in Azon Niche Master.
In fact, did you realize that there are THOUSANDS of other affiliate programs out there that are way better than Amazon? Amazon pays a measly 6% when you could be making up to 75% or even 100% with some companies (usually associated with recurring commissions). Oh, and recurring commissions too!
Amazon has a lot of stuff to promote which is the main attraction point for this program. But there are way more downsides, like their 24 hour cookie (some places have lifetime cookies), the fact that they don't operate in all countries or states, and that if someone from a different country buys through your link (from a different Amazon site), you don't get credit.
*If someone from the UK buys from the Amazon.co.uk using your US Amazon.com link, you make $0.
After buying Azon Niche Master you will only know how to find some products worth promoting from Amazon. There's a lot of puzzle pieces missing, so even thought it's a cheap an accurate product, I don't think it's worth paying attention to

This is where I learned how to build my first website, and I was eventually able to quit my job to become a full time affiliate marketer. It's a newbie friendly, guru-free training center, and has the best support of any product I've ever reviewed.
